“We advise anyone with family or friends who may have bought this product to contact them in case they do not see or hear this announcement,” Mr Quin said.

Consumers should not consume the above-stated products but should return them to the point of purchase (with the appropriate packaging (batch code included)) for a full refund.

This recall is limited to the above-stated products and no other Mainland products are affected.

Food recall notices have been placed in daily newspapers across New Zealand this week and authorities have been notified.
